Rustic Holiday Decor

My friend Peggy and I have similar tastes when it comes to a lot of things but the other evening while we were drinking wine and making crafts she showed me her Christmas decor Pinterest board and the things she wanted to make or get for her holiday decor this year.  It was filled with rustic Holiday decor and I loved it.

Now, we are probably going to have matching houses.  Which is sort of fun and yet sort of weird.  LOL!

Here is a little tour of what we are planning for our homes this season.


Noel Mantel Piece -

First is this NOEL mantel piece from Jill’s Blog.  I love the wreath in place of the “O”.  Very clever.  I do not have a mantel but I could find a shelf or a buffet top for this guy.



Ho Ho Ho Pillows -

OMGeeee!  I am in love with these pillows. I just can’t wait to see them as I walk into my back porch on the little bench.  They are from 112FarmhouseLayne on Etsy.  This Etsy seller has tons of fun pillows like this with different sayings.  It is definitely worth a look.



Jingle Bells -

The adorable jingle bells.  Now the pin is from FourRDesigns on Etsy but the description on Pinterest says grab some dollar store bells, spray paint them white then distress with sand paper.  I am hoping I can find some somewhere.  They would look great on the railing of my stairs.


Joy Christmas Banner -

What about this banner? It is made from printed sheet music.  BRILLIANT!  This was pinned from  You should go visit her beautiful site when you finish here because she has more of these guys.  Super cute!  Peggy wants to put these in her windows.  Isn’t that a great idea?



gold_rings_wreaths -

And this one….what can I say?  It is so fun and perfect. I love the chalkboard, the wreaths…everything.  It is from My Sisters Suitcase.  Everyone loves them.  Their blog is wonderful and you will probalby get lost in it for hours.

What do you think of these rustic-y Holiday ideas?  How do you decorate for season?  I would love to hear from you.

I love all of these, but pretty sure I need to make the NOEL this year (if I have time). Great holiday inspiration:)

I have chandelier crystals, what can I do with them

Hi Kathy. Chandelier crystals would be great on a swag. If you still want to keep a rustic look you could make a door swag with spruce tips then add a burlap bow. Hang a few of the crystals from the center of the bow. You can find a picture of the swag with the burlap on my pinterest page Just replace the bells with your crystals.

If you don't follow me you can search for Michelle James then find my "My Holiday Inspiration" board.

Good Luck!

Love the NOEL, as well! I have been collecting rusted jingle bells for the last few years, and now have them in two sizes. Sorry, I'm not sharing! This is good inspiration for some great gift ideas, as well. I have lots of decor, but Jennifer could use some.
